On Monday Night Raw, fans witnessed Randy Orton being in cahoots with The Authority once again. That has led some to believe that he pulled a heel turn just one day after making a return at Fast Lane to attack Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane. As of right now, WWE still has plans on Orton being utilized as a baby face. They simply wanted to show the friction between Orton and Rollins again in case some fans have forgotten after four months.

As expected, Randy Orton made his return to WWE over the weekend during Fast Lane. He immediately set his sights on the man that he will most likely be wrestling against at Wrestlemania. Unless something drastic comes about to change up the plans, Orton and Rollins are currently penciled to work a high profile match at the pay per view together. The rivalry will need to be built up again because Orton was forced to take a couple of months off.

While he has yet to make television return for WWE, there are still plans in the works for Randy Orton. As of right now, he is penciled in for a high profile match against Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania. Management would like to start promoting that match soon, so Orton could be making his return as early as this Sunday when Fast Lane takes place. There, he would more than likely do a sneak attack on Rollins, who would then seek his own revenge.

Fans have been waiting for the Randy Orton return for the last couple of shows now, and he has yet to make an appearance. The belief is that WWE is holding it off because they simply have yet to find a place for him on Fast Lane. If they are unable to get an opponent for the former world heavyweight champion, then his return might be delayed until after the pay per view. Management does not want him brought back without a story line.

Those that watched the Royal Rumble last night noticed that Randy Orton was not one of the 30 contestants, even though he was heavily rumored and actually advertised for the pay per view. He actually was backstage and dressed in his ring gear last night, which means that he has been medically cleared to wrestle again. Management simply opted to postpone his return because they felt that the timing was not right last night.

It looks like WWE fans are going to have to wait a bit longer to see the return of Randy Orton. He reportedly is going in for surgery to repair a deviated septum. The nose injury will keep him out of action for a couple of days, but those within the company believe that the former world heavyweight champion will be ready to wrestle full matches against by the time the Royal Rumble comes around. He could be a surprise entrant in the match.

Orton showed up after the cameras went dark.
